The team comes in and finds House reading about a naval base. Foreman brings them the case about a 14-year-old girl, Iris, who had an anaphylactic reaction.

Dr. Park: I like naval stuff.
Dr. House: I like their oranges and lint.
Dr. Adams: I thought it was relevant.
Dr. House: Death is a consequence, not a symptom. If it's not a symptom, it's not relevant.
Dr. Wilson: You have a dead patient?
Dr. House: Bigotry is boring when we add modifiers. I don't see creed, color, pulse.
Milton: I’d like to inquire as to exactly what procedure you intend to perform on the remains.
Dr. House: Have you ever heard of the North American Man/Dead Boy Love Association?
Dr. Wilson: We have a problem.
Dr. Foreman: Does it limp?
Dr. House: You're right.
Dr. Wilson: You don't even know what I said.
Dr. House: That is ridiculous. Blah blah blah blah blah deaf ears. Blah blah blah blah blah blah. Absolutely essential information.
Dr. Wilson: Your job is to keep this machine running. It's your choice to make House a useful tool or a monkey wrench. Cuddy's way didn't fail because she didn't try to control House, she managed him. She knew better than anybody what a tool he could be.
Dr. Wilson: Have you seen Bride of the Monster?
Bride of the Monster is a 1955 horror movie by Ed Wood about a scientist who keeps an octopus near his manor while using nuclear power to create an army of super-soldiers.
Dr. House: Thank you, Igor.
Igor is the stock name used for hunchbacked lab assistants in horror movies.
